Bio and Links
Bio Photo Each time I create a memorial I delight in thinking that it may someday provide valuable information to a genealogist or comfort to a loved one.

Transfers - Please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial, send a "Suggest any other correction" message including your "ID number", I'm more than happy to transfer memorials to their RELATIVES, as per FAG rules.

If FAMILY MEMBERS wish to have a memorial deleted I will do so, no questions asked.

Some dates/names on the headstones are hard to read. If you can help, please click the Edit tab at the top and input the changes. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated in the completion of "Unknown" and incomplete memorials.

Volunteer contributors spend countless hours creating memorials after visiting cemeteries, photographing headstones and obtaining burial information. I am sure everyone would like to know their efforts are appreciated. I know I do.

"Any contributor can upload an appropriate photo to any memorial regardless of who manages the page. No permission from the memorial manager is needed. However, if there is already a photo of the headstone, do not add a second similar photo unless the original is of poor quality and the new photo is dramatically better. "

adding memorial tributes
I hope you can help me. How do you add memorial tributes found on memorial walls in cemeteries but the people are interred somewhere else? There are several cemeteries that have plaques with birth year and death year and name of loved one.
Thank you for any help you can give me.

Thank you. I so enjoyed my time in Canada. As we traveled through, we would stop at cemeteries when we could. we have a 40 Ft. Motor Home so it wasn't all that easy to just go anyway. Linda

RE: Charles F
Forgot to fill in his full name, Charles Frederick Lestock! Can't find a burial place for his daddy Dr. Frederick Charles Lestock Haszard who died in England in 1935, but his granddaddy was Francis Longworth Haszard, buried in Sherwood Cemetery, Brackley, PEI. I just created a memorial for his grandmother, Margaret Elizabeth DesBrisay, also buried there. FLH's memorial is 8170311 and the new one I created for Margaret Elizabeth is 148392332. My connection is via the DesBrisay family.

Hi, Bear Hugs, I heard from a shirt-tail relative of Wilbur's and she sent me a very good story about him, attached to the end of his memorial. Thought you would enjoy it! Kara
